The joy of getting out and about in FC

Ford’s Colony’s scenic beauty makes walking, running and riding its rolling hills an extra-special experience.

Ford’s Colony is among the most naturally beautiful neighborhoods in the Williamsburg-James City County area. And that breathtaking beauty arrayed over 3,200 manicured acres becomes extra special for active residents who take advantage of the Colony’s winding, scenic and safe roads and walking paths.

While exercising on public roads and streets has become more dangerous lately in large part due to distracted driving, cyclists, runners and walkers in Ford’s Colony enjoy 15 miles of smooth paths and 50 miles of paved roads through woods and over gently rolling hills — with minimal intrusion by vehicles.

And then there’s the gorgeous two-mile nature trail on top of that.

The community of Ford’s Colony is active on a daily basis from first light — walking dogs, traversing “the loop” with friends, heading over to the swim and tennis club to play the wildly popular pickleball — so much so that motorists are used to safely co-existing with and yielding to pedestrians and riders. Usually with a friendly wave from behind the wheel.

That familiarity breeds awareness and a self-assuredness that benefits all who make getting out into the fresh air and invigorating setting a regular part of their Ford’s Colony day.
